Musicvox Spaceranger prototype handmade in the USA

Whilst all Musicvox's production guitars have been made in Korea, a handful of prototype Spacerangers were produced for the 1997 and 1998 NAMM shows in Anaheim, California, and initially so as to give the factory in Korea something tangible to work from.

This Musicvox Spaceranger prototype dates from 1997 and features a yellow/gold/cream swirl "mother of toilet seat" top and a black acrylic veneer on the back of the body. It has a maple neck with lacquer finish, rosewood finger board and rosewood bridge, new old stock KAY (USA) trapeze tailpiece, Kent Armstrong neck-mounted Jazz humbucker and Kent Armstrong mini humbucker in the bridge position, and Kluson Keystone machine heads.

This guitar is currently being offered for sale on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $3,600.

Thanks to Jim Hevesy for bringing this to my attention.
